      Pros

      GREAT BENEFITS..NOTHING ELSE TO SAY

      Cons

      LOUSY PEOPLE TO WORK WITH VERY EGOTISTICAL, not friendly, very indifferent, snobs, low life's...... management does not say one word to you after 6 months of being there....... when it changed from Albertsons to safeway it was awful. the computer system was not compatible with the software applications and visa versa, customers were complaining, after over 2.2 years of working there I quit...... could not take the incompentance of the management and computer programing, software etc..... very bad customer service after the new safeway registers were in effect............ people arguing and complaining constantly... after 11 years a guy who was working there said it was quitting time after the new registers were installed on self check out because he could not take people complaining each second... it was awful.... bad choice of replacing the registers, etc....... NEVER KNOW THE HOURS AND DAYS YOU WILL WORK CHANGES ALL THE TIME. CALL YOU ON YOUR DAYS OFF AND EXPECTS YOU TO WORK.

      Pros

      The flexible schedule is nice, especially if like me you are a student and need to be able to work the schedule around classes.

      Cons

      This place is okay to work for in the short term. i would not recommend making working here a permanent career choice as there is little to no room for advancement.
